Did You Know?

-Youtube has a feature where you can make your own playlists? Where was I when that happened? Okay, I realize that's probly a basic feature that everyone knew about, but I'm one of those people that didn't score real well on the world-smarts portion of life. I'm better with useless facts. My playlist is currently a weird mix of Weezer, Michael Buble and Chopin.

-Americans dislike Shannen Doherty and Pamela Anderson even more than they dislike Kate Gosselin? What? Really America? I mean, don't get me wrong, Pam and Shannen aren't anywhere on my list of people I care about, but are they any better than Kate?

-Despite her ridiculous work-out outfits, (who really works out in a skirt?!) (unless they're a tennis player), the Turbo Jam lady has decent work-out videos. Actually, I don't really like any of her dancey/cardio ones, but she's got a Turbo Sculpt one that works my you-know-what off. And since that's my goal, well then that's actually rather nice. But seriously-I can't take anyone seriously who tried to work out in a tiny, pink plaid skirt.

Shannen Doherty is totally better than Kate Gosselin. Between this season's AI and DWTS, I am slightly embarrassed to be American. I guess I can't really complain when I don't take the time to "make my vote count".

Kristina P. said...

I don't watch DWTS, but Kate Gosselin is like the female Mario Lopez.

Pull this thread as I walk away. Watch me unravel I'll soon be naked.

Erin said...

Weezer AND Chopin? A match made in heaven.

Cherie said...

I am really loving DWTS this season but I am with you. Kate Gosselin is actually painful to watch - she has no rhythem or grace at all! At least Shannon and Pamela can actually dance.
My favorite is Nicole and Derek!

Garden of Egan said...

Haven't watched it at all. I must be a loser.
As far as Kate....well, she was such a raunch on J&K+8 that I couldn't stand her even then.

I didn't know that about youtube. I'm just in awe of all the knowledge you have.

Homer and Queen said...

I don't watch DWTS. I am too busy watching First 48 or Lockup:Raw. I need help, I know.

Rachel Sue said...

Honestly, I know next to nothing about youtube.

And I don't watch DWTS but I am surprised to hear that she is still there.

The Jessee Journal said...

Don't be dissin' on Chalene. SHE can work it in a pink skirt, or a studded belt with cargos. She rocks man.

April said...

I'm with you on the youtube thing. I don't watch DWTS I do watch ABDC tho & AI. Not impressed with AI this year. What is going on?

Kazzy said...

Pink plaid skirt? I missed that reference. Man, I'm old...

Eternal Lizdom said...

I don't watch DWTS but I did crack up when it made the news that Kate had a fight with her trainer... from the few episodes I ever watched of her TLC show, she sounded like her old self! As much as I think Jon is a butt, seeing her continued true colors made me feel a little sympathy for him!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

First, I agree with Kristina.

Second...I also had no idea and now I have to go check that out!

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

Yes, I would say I'm much more irritated at Kate than the other 2. Since when does popping out 6 kids at once and being a brat make you celebrity? She bugs the crap out of me!

JD said...

well, i was about to ask what all those women happen to have in common, but after browsing the comments I have my answer. i apologize i have no input of value.

Alyssa said...

I like Shannon Doughtery (spelling) I guess it is from when I use to watch 90210. I know call me a geek...it won't hurt my feelings! LOVE your blog btw glad I found it.

wendy said...

KATE drives me crazy....I need her to be gone.
She is not fun to watch.
She is just not likeable it seems
and the guy from the soap opera is just as annoying.
bunch of whinners.

I am with Cherie...DEREK AND NICOLE all the way baby.

Becky Dayton said...

I'm a litle sad someone compared Kate to Mario. I may be in love with Mario Lopez. Actually I'm in love with Slater so I guess it's fine if she slams Mario.
It's so obnoxious to me that everyone is interested in Kate Gosselin. I don't care three straws about her!
I'm going to make a playlist soon with the best dances of SYTYCD, then when I'm in the mood I'll watch them all over again!
Workout skirts. MMhmm. Almost as effective as sports push up bras.

Heidi Ashworth said...

Aside from who likes whom better, Shannon danced better than Kate. Kate must have all her kids dialing and voting full time.

Connie said...

I haven't been watching DWTS this season! Not sure why.
I guess I'm going to have to give my little pink plaid workout skirt to Goodwill.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

I could not agree with you more on all these thoughts
1) had not a clue about youtube
2) um, HELLO!? you are so right
3) tiny pink plaid skirt? really?

Mayhem and Moxie said...

Um, yes. The answer to your question in bullet number two is a resounding YES. Shannen is definitely better than Kate.

Please tell me that you are a Charmed and 90210 fan. Because I am not sure that we can go forward if you are not.

;)

Chief said...

Um yeah... so exercise on the TV.. or worse.. the 'puter!?


gasp!

LaurieJ said...

I totally run in a skirt~! Laugh if you want, but once I saw a running ad that said 'Does this skirt make my butt look fast?' and I was sold :-)

Machen said...

I like the lady from Turbo Jam more than Jillian Michaels. I should know, I have both their videos.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I didn't know that about Youtube either. I'm sorta a useless facts girl myself. Maybe that's why we get on so well.

And AMEN about Pam and Kate. HELLO! Kate is freakin' me out!

Smart Helm said...

This is in response to ur asking about swimming tri training. If you would like, when I was in the thick of things I bought a swimming DVD from Total Immersion that helped. I'd let u borrow it cuz it's pretty expensive. I haven't actually used it since but don't feel bad about spending the money cuz my friend used it too and I liked supporting this guy. Really all it takes is practice but at least this DVD gives u direction. Let me know.
